August 2013 --- Dear Dr. Osborne,
Just a short note to thank you for your wonderful lecture notes on ventilation. I am studying for my anaesthetics exams and was having some trouble with Ganong's explanations (or lack thereof) of lung compliance and resistance. You have explained these so beautifully. So thank you!
